Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from acronym}}
}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from acronym}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on all redirects from acronyms to their expanded forms. Please do not use this template for initialisms that are not also acronyms. Instead, use the {{R from initialism}} rcat. Also, if the redirect is from the initials of a personal name, then use {{R from short name}} instead.

Aliases

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many acronym redirects to expanded forms are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are thought to be unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:
